AL-ANBAR MISSION PREPARATION IN IRAQ
 
AL-ANBAR MISSION PREPARATION IN IRAQ
Cpl. Michael T. Wier, from 1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, or “First Team,” provides weapons maintenance to his vehicle’s main gun before “leaving the wire” for a mission on Al Anbar Province’s dangerous roads, June 3, 2006. The 22-year-old from Scottsdale, Ariz., is with the battalion’s Personal Security Team. The team’s job is cut and dry – provide maximum security for the battalion’s top brass. The team consists of a handful of armored humvees with a variety of infantry weapons, to include heavy machine guns and anti-armor weapons. While most U.S. Marine Personal Security Teams are composed of infantrymen, Marano’s Personal Security Team is comprised mostly of “support” Marines – administrative clerks, communications technicians, and other “non-infantry”-type occupations.
